Shu’ayb al-Arna’ut: Qadi Abu Yusuf is trustworthy

Here is an excerpts from Shaykh Shu’ayb al-Arna’ut’s research on Sharh Mushkil al-Athar of Imam Abu Ja’far at-Tahawi. He counted Qadi Abu Yusuf, the student of Imam Abu Hanifa, as trustworthy (thiqah).

Mushkil al-Athar - Abu Yusuf 1

2256: Ja’far bin Ahmad bin al-Walid al-Aslami — Bishr bin al-Walid al-Kindi — Abu Yusuf — ‘Ubaydullah bin ‘Umar — Usamah bin Zayd — ‘Irak bin Malik — Abu Hurayrah from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh), narrated a report similar to the previous one.[2]

[2] Its chain is Hasan due to Usamah bin Zayd al-Laythi. Rest of its narrators are trustworthy.
